Tehran, Jan. 26 – A seventeen-year-old boy was sentenced to execution by a Tehran court. The boy, only identified by his first name Sattar, was accused of murder.

Sattar allegedly stabbed to death a man by the name of Mahmoud a few months ago after a scuffle at a phone booth in Islamshahr (southern Tehran).

The exact date of the execution has not been announced.

Last week a young man who was accused of killing a member of Iran’s security forces when he was a minor was hanged in the notorious Evin prison in Tehran.

Iman Farrokhi who was 17 at the time of the offence was on death row in the Tehran Centre for Reform and Education (Juvenile Prison).

Mohammad T., another teenager currently in one of Iran’s Centers for Reform and Education, is to also be hanged to death in the coming weeks for allegedly stabbing someone when he was 14.

His sentence was approved by Iran’s Supreme Court.

Under Iranian law, girls above the age of nine and boys above the age of fifteen are considered as adults and could be executed for capital offences.

At present at least 30 juveniles are on death row in Tehran and Rajai-Shahr (40km west of the Iranian capital) for offences they have been alleged to have committed under the age of 18.
